Achieve the Core – An Interactive Tool for Teaching Mathematics

Achieve the CoreThe Achieve the Core Coherence Map is an interactive website that maps the Common Core Standards for K-8 Mathematics across standards and grade levels.  As students struggle with a specific standard, the teacher can use the map to determine the specific needs for remediation as the map illustrates the structure of learning for each standard from its introduction in previous grades.  In addition, as students master a standard, the map will provide a direction for a more in depth look for enrichment opportunities.  Sample problems are included that reflect the rigor  that is expected for each standard.  Achieve the Core is recommended by the Mathematics Department of the Department of Public Instruction.
